  • Child in tree So much more than just a tree: plants in Children’s and Young Adult Literature Dec. 1, 2021

    From the forests of the tales of the Brothers Grimm to Enid Blyton’s The Faraway Tree, from the flowers of Cicely Mary Barker’s fairies to the treehouse in Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton’s popular 13-Storey Treehouse series, trees and other plants have been enduring features of stories for children and young adults. The brand-new book Plants in Children’s and Young Adult Literature, co-edited by Associate Professor Melanie Duckworth (Østfold University College) and Professor Lykke Guanio-Uluru (Western Norway University of Applied Sciences), maps out and presents an internationally inclusive view of plant representation in texts for children and young adults – and shows how this is far more than just a fairy tale.
